Having stayed at Kempinski at other locations before, I knew what I got myself into by choosing Kempinski again. The layout of this resort is so beautiful; there is a private beach and you could spend time floating on the Dead Sea or simply chill in the infinity pool. I had a room with a sea view. The bathroom was... More

It is not the first time I stay in this lovely hotel. In my opinion it is the best in that area. I have been to most of the others, but this is a different experience.

I stayed for a week for a business trip. I stayed in the main building for five nights and at Ishtar Village for the last two nights. Obviously would recommend that you choose the Ishtar village which is superior and closer to pools and restaurants. The service was superb. Room kept very clean and tidy. Staff were very pleasant and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Kempinski Hotel Ishtar gives you the opportunity to enjoy its riches where Queen of Sheba and Cleopatra once strived to unravel mystery. Situated gracefully on the shores of the largest spa in the world the Dead Sea, unique for its ozone-rich air, mineral sea water and ultra-violet filtered sunshine. Surely there is no region on earth where nature and history have more wonderfully conspired, where so exciting drama has obtained a so beautiful theatre. ... more   less
